I made a 3 Tier Cake, Did the whole works put the rods and the Cake looks like is sinking What can I do ? Please
Picture? Is the upper tier actually sinking into the bottom tier? Were the dowels at least as tall as the tier?
The bottom and second tier. I put 3 rods and the when I added the 3rd one I added 3 more. Back, middle and front...same in the 2 bottom i put 2 rods...Mind you I reside in Ct and My sister picked it up to took to New York...Thanks for your respond and Help. It's so appreciate it...
I probably would have put in more supports, at least 4, but probably 5 or 6 in the bottom tier, depending on size.
What Karen said. Two support dowels simply is of no use at all. You'd have to use a minimum of three just to provide a stable surface for the cake.
I know that Indy uses 4 dowels for support per tier. I learned years ago to use 1 dowel per each inch of diameter, therefore there'd be 6 dowels underneath a 6" tier.
However, NOW I use SPS for every cake.
